and departments that have their hands in the libya affair, cia, dod, state, white house, fbi, i think it's clear that the cia's jurisdiction in a lot of what happened was probably minimal. that makes petraeus's downfall all the more sad, because i think of everyone the cia and david petraeus probably had the cleanest hands in all of this. we have to see. we obviously have plenty more questions going forward. >> to your point, s.e., it shows his resignation was over the extra-marital affair. >> yeah. >> i want to take a step back here on this whole issue. i mean, i think -- let me start by saying that i think the questions about the security at the consulate in benghazi are legitimate questions that deserve investigation. the thing that republicans have really glomed onto is what susan rice said on face the nation. i want to play her comments so we can put that in context. >> i understand you have been saying that you think it was sfont n spontaneous. are we not on the same page here? >> let me tell you what we understand to the assessment at present. first of all, as you discussed with the presi
, shockwaves through washington. new details emerging now this weekend about the fbi investigation that led to the discovery of what officials believe was an extramarital affair between petraeus and his biographer, paula broadwell. of course, so many questions where this goes from here. joining me on the latest with this developing story, the "washington post's" bob woodward and our own chief foreign affairs correspondent, andrea mitch, who broke the story, as i mentioned on friday. andrea, here we are sunday morning, new details. we know there was someone close to petraeus who got threatening e-mails, a whistleblower, she goes to the fbi and that's how they get to the affair. >> this other woman, and we know that she is not in the government and that she is not a family member, complained to fbi about what she felt were harassing and threatening e-mails. with that investigation that led to -- they were anonymous e-mails that led to broadwell's e-mail account and by examining paula broadwell's e-mail account that's how they uncovered, or stumbled, as they put it, into this. >> sexually expl
buy grafr, paula broadweliograp. kelley is shown with petraeus and their spouses. from there the fbi's investigation uncovered sexually explicit e-mails between broadwell and petraeus. they set up e-mails with fake names. when the fbi questioned petraeus and broadwell, both came clean about the relationship in october. we're told that the president didn't learn about the investigation until last thursday. attorney general eric holder and two house republicans including eric cantor knew weeks before, perhaps more curious, how could the cia, the agency that knows all, not have known about this? let's go to the table. i actually think that the biggest questions are for the fbi. they did not inform the senate intelligence committee, who is supposed to be informed of any fbi investigations that potentially involve national security. they were not informed until friday basically right before all of us found out. so i kind of think the biggest questions here are for the fbi and their handling of the investigation, but really the question on everybody's mind is g mail, really? g mail, head o

, as toure was saying, the questions seem to resolve around should the fbi have told the president, have told members of the senate intelligence committee specifically before the election? the question for you, governor, if we had known before the election, would it have made any different? not like the president having this affair. you know, it's a scandal but not the president's scandal. would it have mattered in the election? >> i don't think it would have mattered in the election. this is a little bit of insider baseball but if the republicans thought there was an advantage to getting this out, eric cantor one of their leaders knew about it and could have justifiably got it out. the thrust has to be the fbi. the fbi is a disaster in this investigation, in so many different fronts, and ought to be investigated from the very first decision to go after the second woman's e-mails. i mean, what was it in the first -- in the e-mails to kelley that prompted them to go after the other e-mails? >> should they have told congress? >> congressional leaders? probably so. should eric cantor have told r
